$45M to Honeywell to Support USMC Prepositioning Supply Ships
Honeywell Technology Solutions in Jacksonville, FL received a not-to-exceed $45 million modification to a previously awarded cost-plus-award-fee task order to provide prepositioning and logistics support services to the US Marine Corps.
Honeywell’s logistics support efforts include maintenance, supply, and inventory management of prepositioned combat assets aboard ships.
Under the original $707 million indefinite-delivery/ indefinite-quantity contract (M67004-09-D-0020), Honeywell supports the Maritime Prepositioning Ships (MPS) Program and the Marine Corps Prepositioning Program-Norway…
The Maritime Prepositioning Force (MPF) Program includes 16 ships configured to transport supplies for the USMC. The ships contain supplies for initial military operations – everything from tanks and ammunition, to food and fuel, to spare parts and engine oil.
Each MPF squadron carries sufficient equipment and supplies to sustain 17,000 Marine Corps Air Ground Task Force personnel for up to 30 days. Each ship can discharge cargo either pierside or while anchored offshore using lighterage carried aboard. This capability gives the Marine Corps the ability to operate in both developed and underdeveloped areas of the world.
The Marine Corps Prepositioning Program-Norway consists of 3 equipment caves, 3 ammunition caves, and 2 hangars loaded with prepositioning equipment and supplies located in Norway.
Honeywell will perform the work in Jacksonville, FL and expects to complete it by September 2010. USMC’s Blount Island Command in Jacksonville, FL manages the contract.
